Peter Jackson to film new Middle Earth film
« on: April 01, 2015, 02:45:51 AM »
It seems Peter Jackson is not finished with Middle Earth quite yet.  News from New Line Cinema is that Jackson is to return to New Zealand later this year to film a seventh Middle Earth film tentatively titled 'The Fatty Bolger chronicles.'  The film will be a sidequal to Lord of the Rings and tell the tale of the Battle for Middle Earth from the perspective of the  beloved 5th hobbit, Fatty Bolger.  An insider has revealed that this will be the chance to put on film much loved moments from the original trilogy such as the barrow wights, Tom Bombaldil and the razing of the Shire.  For years fans have grumbled about these scenes not being included in the original films and now finally they will be seen on the big screen.  Currently it is rumoured that popular British comedian and actor James Corden will play Fatty Bolger.

Anyone else excited about this?

I'm completely surprised. I can get behind it, though. Could be fun!

It would appear you've managed to hook at least one. To everyone else I say, look at the date people.
I will expand your TBR pile.

I woke up today prepared for this. Nice try, though, Nighteyes. ;D

In Jmacyk's defence, I think he was still living in the past (meaning yesterday) when he replied. It's hard to do things like this when there are people from widely different timezones around. :)
Everything I wrote above is pure conjecture. I don't know what I'm talking about.

I'm a perfectionist but not very good at anything. That's why I rarely finish things.

I persona?ly think J-Mack was being a good sport and playing along in hope we might entrap a few unwary souls.

You might be right. And if that is the case (and even if not), I'm truly sorry for my part in ruining the trap. :(

I may have believed it if the name of that hobbit (he left the others before they became famous) hadn't been so silly. ;)

I am actually the most gullible human being on the planet. Have to tell you about my son, the horse and carriage and spring break one day.

But if you want to think I was a sharp character and playing along, that's ok by me!  ;)

Totally got me. If no one had said a word about it being a joke, my response was going to be, another one?

But I'm a pathetic Tolkien fanboy.
I'll totally take another Jackson film,
and I loves me some Fatty Bolger and Tom Bombadil!

You should take a trip to Hobbiton in NZ. You'll hear some stories about some extremely obsessed fans there. The couple who spoke fluent Elvish, but one of them couldn't speak a word of English and her spouse had to translate everything into Elvish for her. The two guys who took the tour, bought one of the 'one ring' copies (at $700 a ring) in the gift shop, then dropped it into Mt Ruapehu (the active volcano in NZ that doubles as Mt Doom). One of them took a helicopter flight over, and the other one said that was cheating and hiked up it, then sent footage to the Hobbiton people to prove that he'd done it.

Awww.  Looks like the prank would have fooled a few of you.  Just a shame the Elfybot2343a didn't understand the concept of a joke.
